2020 Lexus ES Near Springfield MA
The ultra-sleek and sporty Lexus ES returns for the 2020 model year with an all-new F Sport variation that adds some truly athletic upgrades to this already stylish midsized luxury sedan. While its appearance remains relatively unchanged since last year, this new F Sport version will change things up in a few notable ways. As far as the other versions, the ’20 ES comes in 350, 350 F Sport, 350 Luxury, 350 Ultra Luxury, 300h, 300h Luxury, and 300h Ultra Luxury styles.
The 350s get their power from a 3.5-liter V6 engine (302 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque) mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. With the hybrid 300s, a 2.5-liter inline-four works with a high-output electric drive motor to generate 215 total system horsepower; those models get a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Front-wheel drive is standard across the board.
Comfort and Convenience
All ES models are outfitted with keyless entry and push-button ignition, illuminated entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, and drive mode select. Most of the luxury goods show up when you upgrade past the 350 and 300h grades (unless you opt for the following amenities as add-ons). The higher trims receive heated and ventilated front seating, ambient interior lighting, a 14-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with a power cushion extender, and memory functions for the driver’s seat, outside mirrors, and steering wheel.
The Ultra Luxury versions come with a power open/close trunk with kick sensor, a power rear sunshade, and a semi-aniline perforated leather-trimmed interior. With the F Sport, uniquely styled front bumper and lower grille inserts are included, as well as special F Sport badging, aluminum pedals, race-oriented instrumentation, a perforated-leather steering wheel, exclusive stitching, and sport seats.
Safety & Technology
The Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 is standard on all ES models. This includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane tracing assist, dynamic radar cruise control, lane departure alert with steering assist, road sign assist, and intelligent high beams. Optional for all ES versions is blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and intuitive parking assist with automatic braking. Premium triple-beam LED headlamps with adaptive front lighting is optional for all other grades, and available for the Luxury and Ultra Luxury models is a high-resolution panoramic view monitor. Rain-sensing wipers come standard on all ES trims except for the basic 350 and 300h, although they can be added as options.
All ES models receive Amazon Alexa, Apple CarPlay, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and satellite radio. Available features include a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment display, a 10.2-inch head-up display, voice commands, a 17-speaker Mark Levinson premium surround sound audio system, integrated navigation, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and a remote touchpad that controls aspects of the vehicle such as multimedia, climate controls, and navigation. For the F Sport model, a Sport S+ drive mode comes standard which adds steering and suspension enhancements for those F Sport models equipped with the available Adaptive Variable Suspension.
